Windows 7 has the beautiful GUI “AERO glass”. Works great with multimedia and has very good and overall stable performance.
Windows 8.1 works even better then Windows 7 did.
Windows 8.1 are more secure and faster. The OS itself has less impact on disk and are more optimized for multimedia like Audio, Video DAWs etc. Win 8.1 has a special “smart disk” enhancement and ability too. The only bad thing is that it hasn’t the beautiful GUI “AERO glass” look anymore.
Windows 10 (Release second or third quarter 2015)- Are the best of both worlds.
Comes with more and all functions you find in Windows 8.1. Windows 10 will be even more better optimized for multimedia, audio video, game then any previously released Windows version ever have before.
You have the ability to run smart apps directly on the desktop instead of Metro. You have also virtual desktops views that you can design as of own liking. The beautiful GUI “AERO glass” comes back as a new re-worked Windows 10 AERO version.
In new Windows 10 you will get the virtual assistance Cortana, that talk to interact by speech directly with the user. This is the beginning and the first step of intelligent computers that talk to interact with the user. She knows everything about you and she learns everyday about you and your family members, pets, were you eat, what you eat and so on. Like a human assistance.
Soon mouse and keyboard will be in the past.
